Size: 3,550 SF
Client: Temple University Health System
Architect: Charles Matsinger Associates
Completion: July 2024

The Jeanes Hospital Emergency Department expansion includes a new one-story addition to accommodate supplementary exam rooms and nurse stations. In addition to general and specialty exam rooms, the work will incorporate new patient bathrooms, storage rooms, and new mechanical systems. The addition will be surgically connected to the existing hospital, physically breaking through and expanding the Emergency Department’s reach, and requiring precision and expediency to maintain function of existing spaces. Rooms will be outfitted with new headwall systems for medical gas, nurse call, power, and data, and new mechanical systems – dedicated air-handling units, exhaust fans, and ductwork – will run throughout. A new mechanical shaft will extend
across four floors of the existing hospital, making room for
the new changes.

The compact addition will incorporate a new sprinkler system, tied to the hospital’s existing system, and new electrical distribution tied to existing switchgear. Hospital-grade finishes will line the interior and the exterior EIFS finish will blend seamlessly into the building’s existing façade.
